, this is the state that will likely decide the presidential election. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim

agree with scott, you know, the president sort of made fun of mitt romney's five-point plan, but i tell you what, if the democrats are willing to give on tax simplification, and some people will pay more taxes, and then they bring a more serious proposal on the table to entitlement reform, there is a deal that can be had. i think both the president and speaker boehner have indicated they're willing to give that a shot. >> thank you, gentlemen. good to see both of you and thanks for your work on behalf of the american people. congressman steve nortorette of ohio and congressman john ridgelle from virginia. >>> well, it could still push this economy over the edge. what president obama can do in his second term, next. is, nyquil doesn't unstuff your nose. what?

reasons for this. one, they looked at what mitt romney was offering, which was a tear down of tododd-frank and thought that's probably better for us, but the other thing that is important for the numbers is the tax policy and the fact that barack obama said he was going to increase taxes on the wealthy which happen to be the big donors. romney was talking about lowering those taxes. a lot of that is people voting with their pocket book. >> people say why does corporate america seem upset that barack obama won? it could be there are people who are investors who are upset because it's going to cost them money. >> rich guys want to keep their mon money. >> let's talk about financial regulation. americans still want to be safe from their financial institutions, and they don't fully feel that way. they don't even partially feel safe. what is your sense? are we able to withstand another financial crisis because while a lot of people say we won't go over the fiscal cliff, we're going to come close with the debt limit again. are we safe? >> we still have banks that are now bigger than they w
